Y-3 and James Harden

Y-3 Limited Edition w/ James Harden!

4/5/18:  Super Fresh, Hot, New Info on Y-3 x James Harden!

Y-3 is launching a Limited Edition collection with James harden on Friday April 13, 2018. The Video below is a teaser of the various pieces.  Almost all items are in black which is super cool. Some Indigo/Very Dark blue and Champagne/Off White.

A Pink Petal Flower is embolised on many pieces.  From what I can see, we can expect:

A Bomber Jacket, Cropped Pants, A Blazer, Hoodie, Tank Top, Regular and Compression Shirts, some logo’d Leggings and 3 different Shoes.  The BYW Bball, The Laceless Tamgutsu and my favorite, the Bashyo featuring the bright pink petal flower. Some items come with the Y-3 stacked logo with inclusion of the Pink Petal Flower.

For some reason, Y-3 is my fav brand of late. And this collection looks like a must shop. Hoping there’s some affordable gear on launch date. Here is one of the sites that should have the dope dudz on release date  See You on the Streetz!

The AHOLA Shirt F/W 2018-19

The Newest Streetzblog Creation

The AHOLA Shirt-Pro Bowl Edition F/W 2018-19

I needed a slight break in the action of Non Stop creations from Scratch. So, took an old plaid shirt from Target and a pretty new Pro Bowl Aloha shirt, combined the 2 and created the AHOLA Shirt. Over time it will Morph & Fray, which will give it even more Flavor. This side project took about 15 hours to complete. 3/7/18

The AHOLA shirt -Streetzblog

For some reason, I thought this would take a couple of hours to complete. But it’s a bit more intricate.  Here’s the process:

  1. Draw shapes on the front with Pink or Light Blue Pencil
  2. Cut out the Aloha print fabric to fit, pin on front if you have time.  You can skip pinning on the front, but I like to do it, to see how it will look
  3. Then take each piece off the front and carefully pin to the inside.  This is actually the most important step. You need to pin each piece in place with many pins.  If you’re lazy on this step, you will end up with an ugly pinched up shirt.  Take your time and pin each piece precisely
  4. Sew each piece on the inside of the shirt.  Do the Back First, then the front then the sleeves
  5. The Reveal!  This is my favorite part. Be very careful, pinch fabric on the front and make a very small hole. Then take some really sharp small scissors and cut the shapes out
  6. Pro Tip:  On the Sleeves, I carefully cut out slits. THEN sew lines thorugh the area, so that it will only fray in certain areas.  This is also fun to do. And will give your creation some expensive looking frays as it morphs through each wash and wear.
  7. Press Shirt and Wear it on Aloha Friday

Exuding Elegance in Le Cite De La Mode

Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2018-19

Paris Fashion Week:  March 2, 2018

One of my goals is to make it to NY Fashion week. After seeing the Paris shows in Feb/Mar 2018, I’m thinking a better goal is to make it to Paris Fashion week. This show is from the Paris portion of the Feb/Mar Quad Fashion Foray.  New York, London, Milan & Paris. And it is Exquisite. Yes, Paris is the goal! Or as YY calls it on the IG post: the Cite de la Mode

Only doing Highlights today.  The show doesn’t really have any low-lights other than the color brown…LOL   I’ll stick with the 2018 easy to read, super-quick attention span style of writing with the fun fonts, colors, bolding etc.

Highlights:

Flowing, Graceful, & Peaceful 

Color Palette:  Black, Dark Grey, A Bit of White and some Brown

A bit of Bowie influence on the Make-Up side of things. Rectangles over one eye

Asymmetric, Bulky-Fluidity, Moving like a slowed down silent movie

Amazing hairdo’s

Classic, Yet a la mode, On-trend, Traditional YY

Comfy Kicks in Highs and Lows-Extra Nice Boots, Cool Tennies in Black and White

Did I say lots and lots of the color Black! YAH!!

Check out the crowd, it’s like they’re frozen in time, in a trance like state! I don’t think I saw a single person move the whole show. Amazing.  And by the looks of the crowd, seems like they took their iPhones from them before the show?  Maybe?

What do you think of the show? This season’s Runway shows?  See you on the Streetz!

Safety Orange Reflective Tape comes between Me and my Calvin’s

Sound the Sirens!

Raf Simons for Calvin Klein F/W 2018

Not sure, how I missed Raf Simons going to CK. Thought his own brand and latest Blade Runner themed Runway show was doing well for him. I suspect it is and he just wanted a new challenge. I do know when I was at DSMNY, Raf’s clothes came in one day and out the other, same with the kicks, Everything sold out very quickly.

I have a personal liking to this collection. In the late 90’s, I was sewing Orange reflective tape on to my shorts, jackets and pants. Was and still is one of my favorite accents.

Here are many of the looks with the Safety-Orange Reflective Tape used on the F/W 2018 clothing.

Orange and Yellow Reflective Tape Accents. Plus a pretty Rad-Raf long-faux Leopard jacket! 

Here’s a few similar items I spotted at the Canal Street Art Cafe in NYC December 2017 The person working the cafe/store/art exhibition told me that Tommy Hilfiger’s younger brother: Andy,  designed these jackets.

And a few of my things lying around the house. Not all with the reflective tape, but all with the vibrant orange hue!

Diesel sells Deisel

Fun Times on Canal St. NYC

DieselxDeisel-Streetzblog Photoshop art

A Trip to NY isn’t a trip to NY without a stop on Canal Street to check the Knock-Off Goods. If you were there in early February 2018, you could’ve scored some decent DIESEL or shall we say DEISEL Gear.

The Real Deal DIESEL set up shop along Chinatown’s Canal street during NYFY2018. For the first day, they acted as if everything was a knock-off. The 2nd day they let everyone know that it was really DIESEL.  The brand received lots of exposure and hopefully some younger fans of the brand.

Prices were also inexpensive and sold on eBay for much more. ProTip:  The DIESEL SITE says to check back on February 19 for a re-stock on the Goods!  Check em out, you may be one of the lucky one’s to score some great deals on DEISEL!  See  you on the Streetz…blog!

 

On the topic of brands knocking off their own brands. Here’s Gucci with Guccy.  I bet they sold a lot of these after the NBA All-Star Game 2018.  Heard one of the announcers say something like this:  Hey, what’s that shirt? That’s not how you spell Gucci
